The Dishonorable Debuff

What is the Dishonorable Debuff?

The Dishonorable Debuff is applied to players who leave a player-versus-player (PvP) match before the match ends. Upon receiving three flags for dishonorable gameplay, the player will be unable to participate in PvP matches for 72 hours. Players are not prevented from joining World-versus-World combat or playing PvE content.

Players who experience a disconnection during a PvP match may receive a flag for dishonorable gameplay upon reconnecting to the match. This is the reason that the system allows three “strikes” or flags for dishonorable gameplay before temporarily suspending a player from participation in PvP matches. If your connection appears to be unreliable, you should refrain from participating in PvP until it stabilizes.

How do I get rid of it?

The only way to get rid of the Dishonorable Debuff is to wait 72 hours for it to expire. If you gain another flag for dishonorable gameplay while you are flagged, the timer will be reset, extending the time your account may be subject to the Dishonorable Debuff. The Guild Wars 2 Support Team is unable to remove dishonorable gameplay flags or otherwise alter the Dishonorable Debuff.
